Project Location

After relocation from EU to Australia I became a member of contract geologist’s team working under Terra Search Ltd. short term contracts. I got opportunity to work for various exciting exploration projects within Australia and finally I could pick up my very first experience as an exploration geologist.

I worked for Jabiru Metals; a copper-zinc-lead-silver VMS deposit Jabiru’s Teutonic Bore Exploration Project, located 70km by road north of Leonora, Western Australia. A next extension of my experience came out with contract given by Mincor Resources NL which brought me to one of the world’s great nickel provinces called the Kambalda Nickel District, in Western Australia a distance of about 560km east from Perth.

Position & Responsibilities
